storm of the eastern pacific hurricane season. and we have tropical storm carina. there is no threat to land. what a is interesting is the warm waters sustaining the storms, they are expected to recirculate back and eventually the moisture is expected to come toward the desert southwest. that could enhance the monsoon rainfall. of course when you have these tropical systems you need the warm water to sustain them. i am watching warm water. look at the bouie temperatures. half moon bay and monterey bay, low to mid60s. even bodega bay is at 58 degrees. that's also responsible for why you are seeing such mild temperatures. from our exploratorium camera, some low clouds and temperatures are in the low to mid60s.
running higher by a few degrees. i just had to make some adjustments to the low temperatures. temperatures in the low 60s 60s in novato and pretty uniform and here is a view from the kgo roof camera. looking out along the embarcadero the it, it is gray and drizzly. it is bouncing us back to where we should be. here is the aer -- here is the area of low pressure. the drizzly conditions. we expect that to continue for one more morning. tomorrow morning, patchy drizzle and it moves into outhern california. we will return back to normal by thursday afternoon and evening. today's high temperatures were a good c to 9 degrees below normal. tomorrow morning if you drop your kids off, make sure you have a jacket or sweatshirt and you will want to bundle up. temperatures in the 50s with
the gray drizzly skies. tomorrow afternoon 67 san francisco and half moon bay. 72 oakland and 82 livermore and 79 in san jose. accu-weather seven-day forecast, a little warmer on thursday. the temperatures will be where they should be for friday this time of year, and then we will see the minor fluctuations. 90s showing up next week. >> looks good. thank you. let's turn to sports. larry beil is here and a really old great movie was run in chicago. remember the keystone cops? >> you have drizzle. i have your live doppler 7 right here. the giants run into a situation they never encountered in franchise history. a storm, a tomorrow, a controversy. is it a loss? sports is next.
if they made a horror movie they may call it the tarp that ate chicago. they found themselves in a wrestling match with the tarp and they lost decisively. let's start with the calm before the storm. trouble in the first inning and anthony rizzo crushes this ball. a two-run homer and his 29th of the season. it is 2-0 cubs. now to your accu-weather forecast. the skies open up in the fifth. a 15-minute downpour and the grounds crew dragged the tarp out like it was a giant prog jeblght they coobt figure out. they had to start all over again. the field turns into a swamp. where is my john deere.
the giants would keep the fans entertained. after more than four and a half hours of waiting moments ago it was just called a 2-0 cubs win dropping them four and a halfback. what a night. the a's are trying to snap a five-game losing streak and hosting the mets. he went six innings striking out six to end the third, but he could not get the fast ball in the fourth. coco crisp looking up and it is out. the a's tie it up and then they go ahead. the bases are loaded for coco crisp. he is the igniter. he has a triple and derrick norris and josh red duck and it is 4-1 athletics and then in the eighth. red duck would add some -- reddick would add some pad.
he wins his 14th and a's are half a game behind the angels who also won. the a's needed a new ballpark. the man who could make it happen was in town. commissioner bud selig offering the wisdom hey pal? you ready? can you pick me up at 6:30? ah...

(dad) it may be quite a while before he's ready, but our subaru legacy will be waiting for him. (vo) the longest-lasting midsize sedan in its class. introducing the all-new subaru legacy. it's not just a sedan. it's a subaru.
selig is in oakland, but he won't rule on whether the a's have to stay there or are free to move to san jose. he appointed a committee to study the situation and apparently they are are examining it like a moon rock. selig continues to do nothing and drops the mess into the lap of the next commissioner. >> we have been unable to solve the stadium and territory issue. i understand.
i understand the frustration and i am frustrated. it is complicated, very complicated. despite the fact people don't think it is, it is. is there anything i would have done differently? i don't think so. i would say i wish i had done this and that, but i wouldn't say that. >> it is complicated. >> it is like unrolling a tarp complicated. >> back in a moment.
